  • New Zaepfel Scoreboard Has Received Permitting from the City of Yakima!

    With full funding from Gesa Credit Union, the Yakima community plus visitors to Zaepfel Stadium at 40th Ave and Tieton Drive will soon see a new scoreboard.

    The City of Yakima and the Yakima School District have been productively engaged in cooperative work to advance the installation of the new display.  The City of Yakima officially issued the permit to the Yakima School District today (2-7-20).

    The next steps include sign production by Daktronics and sign installation.  An installation schedule is not yet available but YSD is hopeful it can take place over the summer of 2020.

    The existing scoreboard, although renovated by Pepsi throughout the years, has been in place since 1969. The new sign is larger in size, more modern in presentation, and includes video playback.  The technology included with the new sign provides opportunities for classroom learning in video production for students at Davis and Eisenhower High Schools and Stanton Academy.

    Gesa Credit Union is covering 100% of the cost of the sign and the sign installation.

    At Ridgeview a group of students have put this quote into action by creating the Random Acts of Kindness Club.  The students volunteered to give up their lunch recess twice a week to meet and work towards furthering the culture of kindess at Ridgeview Elementary.  The club is part of the ongoing work of Jeff Clark and Becky Fernandez, two counselors who staff the calm room.  The calm room welcomes students who need a place to refocus their energy as well as presenting anti-bullying and personal space lessons.  The calm room is a vital part of the culture of Ridgeview Elementary.Kindess Club

  • Enhancing Math Skills at Ridgeview

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 12/17/2018

    Students at Ridgeview use the computer to enhance their math skills. IOed is an online program that offers students an exciting fun way to practice their math skills and give teachers the data they need to meet individual student needs.  In this picture the students in Mrs. Kelly McIlrath's third grade class, are practicing their multiplication and division skills.  Multiplication and division are important third grade concepts that all children should have a solid understanding of.  Ridgeview students use a variety of methods to increase their math skills and IOed is just one way they work to improve.
